Despite the show being over and Danielle Staub gone from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, drama is still brewing. Now, as part of Staub’s court battle with her ex-husband, Caroline Manzo was asked to testify in the trail on behalf of Kevin Maher.
“She depicted him as a monster,” Manzo recalled during her July 22 deposition. “She depicted him as someone who would beat her daily, as someone that put her in the hospital due to the beatings, I want to say on more than one occasion.”
Manzo was called upon to prove his defamation claim against Danielle, where she had said that he raped her on broken glass, hanged or shot her dog, and that he inserted a gun into her and played Russian roulette.
What I find so bizarre about this is that I was led to believe that Staub and Manzo never spoke to one another. Why wouldn’t he have gotten one of the other women she was closer with to speak on his behalf? Strange…and even weirder, them together at OK! Magazine’s 50th Anniversary Party last night!
Danielle has filed a motion with the court to dismiss the case which will be heard on September 27.
